Event History

The apexart Open Call has been operating for a decade and stands as the most democratic Open Call anywhere. Proposals should describe focused, idea-driven, original group exhibitions. No biographical information, CVs, links, or images will be accepted. Submissions cannot exceed 500 words and must be submitted in English. Jurors rate proposals based on their content and the organizer’s ability to communicate, rather than by familiar names or past accomplishments. See examples at https://apexart.org/opencallwinners.php

What Makes this event different?

Rather than convene a small panel to review hundreds of ideas, apexart’s crowd-sourced voting system allows hundreds of jurors to individually review proposals. An international jury composed of 300+ individuals from a wide variety of professional backgrounds—including students at over 10 international universities—will jury the proposals. Proposals are anonymous and randomized to make sure each submission receives the same consideration. apexart staff does not influence the results of the jury in any way.

Copyright Policy

Winning exhibitions are held at 291 Church St, NYC and must be billed in all publications as an apexart exhibition. Curators and artists are given full credit.

apexart is accepting exhibition proposals for its NYC Open Call from October 1-31, 2019. Three winning proposals will become apexart exhibitions presented at apexart’s NYC space as part of its 2020-21 exhibition season. Curators, artists, writers, and creative individuals, regardless of experience level or location, are invited to submit a proposal online.

The results

The three winning proposals will each receive an exhibition budget of $10,000 staff support, and be part of apexart’s 2020-2021 exhibition season. Working closely with the apexart team, curators will realize their original ideas into apexart exhibitions. Exhibition curators are expected, encouraged and challenged to work within the funding provided to transform their winning proposals into small, focused, noteworthy exhibitions.
